This event has ended.

Ken Kitano is a photographer who focuses on themes such as “cities,” “nature,” and “humans.” In recent years, these themes have come to encompass the earth and the universe, as well as newborn babies. This exhibition will center on works from his “Collecting the Lights Project,” which uses cameras in various locations, including the Museum of Modern Art, Saitama rooftop, that have been set up with long exposure times in order to capture the biannual solstices and trace the movement of the sun. There will also be as yet unreleased new works from the series “Future Others” and selections from Kitano’s 1990s series “Dissolving city.”
